Doug Dawson Workshop Report...Day 3

'Goldenrod Marsh'. 9x12       Pastel
I knew it would be a great workshop with Doug Dawson and it exceeded my expectations. The whole experience was fantastic from the great group of fellow artists to the excellent instruction from Doug. I made new friends and learned so much. Doug's wife Sue is a wonderful asset to the workshop experience. She I so helpful and supportive. They make a great team! I highly recommend taking a workshop with Doug.
We began the day by working on our paintings from yesterday's color studies. I decided to try a different subject from yesterday so I did a new set of color studies and developed them into the three paintings shown in this post. This is the kind of exercise I love so the things I learned about doing color studies will be a great help. I have to review my notes and then I will be posting more details!

I took a w/shop with Doug Dawson several years ago in Montreal, Quebec and loved it! I learned a lot and it was one of the best artist experiences I've had.

Very lovely variations on your theme! Almost feel as though I too attended the workshop.
